Dunbrody House has been in good form between the flags but there is a big question mark hanging over him on this soft ground. Fellow pointers Fly Direct and Our Flora also have plenty to prove under Rules while age isn't on the side of Miss Midnight. ORANGER and Johnny No Cash are others more accustomed to competing in hunter chases but they have at least shown a bit of worthwhile form this year and the former could easily come out top in this very weak contest. Heezagrey, on the other hand, took little interest here last month while Civil Servant has become expensive to follow and Ours has lost his way and struggles to stay this far.
